Microsoft Exec Says Company Isn't Trying to Fuel HD Format War

In response to the Blu-ray camp's offensives and accusations this week that Microsoft is prolonging the format war, Kevin Collins, director in the Microsoft Consumer Media Technology Group, defended the company's backing of HD DVD.

"The [Blu-ray] camp's claims about Microsoft's desire to have a format war are baseless," Collins said. "Microsoft has over 100 people working on HD DVD interactivity and we believe that HD DVD is the next-generation optical format."

Collins went on to categorically reject accusations from the Blu-ray camp, and explained why Microsoft had chosen HD DVD over Blu-ray.
